  • The stress from trying to get pregnant is often an unidentified culprit of failed attempts. Also, weight could be a factor...are you under/over weight? If not at a healthy weight you have a reduced chance of getting pregnant.
    Try taking prenatal vitamins to help make sure your body has all the nutrients that it needs to support a new life. And stop trying! Have a drink or two, relax, don't have sex on a schedule, and just have fun doing what people in love do.

    Good Luck!!

  • could be just your timing. Have you been charting your cycles and watching your fertility signs. Check out "taking charge of your fertility" by toni weschler . could be Stress, enviromentals , a healthier or change in diet(such as staying away from caffiene), could be a lot of things. you said your husband has been checked out but have you? make sure you are ovulating , charting and your doctor will be able to determine this.

  • i have PCOS.. policystic ovarian syndrome.. is one good one, it took me ten years of trying. also, if your mucus is to thick it can prevent the sperm getting passed the cervix.. try taking robitussin dm cough medicine, it thins the muccous. lets see.. your follicles arent dropping enough eggs, your arent ovulating when you should.. i could go on, but i am just getting ready to leave.. is a great website..
